It's Almost Time To Leave

I have been emptied out chemically, lit up from both ends with fiber optics, and they don't know where the bleeding came from. This is good. I have been the recipient of some of the best nursing and doctoring you could imagine. Even better than that. I have a different view of Shady Grove Adventist Hospital, and a far, far better one than I did before. This is the hospital where my nephew died February 5 of this year, but that wasn't their fault. He was dead before he got here.

I am being sent home. For those of you who know, I have diverticulosis. Little inflamations of the intestine. Nothing is inflamed now except a juicy hemmoroid or two. The doctor is looking at my use of Mobic for pain, and the 81 mg. of aspirin for the heart (they do this when you get older).

For the time being, it's hurry up and wait. I need to wait to be discharged. I haven't had any food since Friday at noon. The suggestion has been made to cut out spicy foods, to drop weight, to exercise more, and to chase more women. I'm working on it. In the meantime, I need to get discharged, get something to eat, and go see Holmes!

Next post will be from home!!!!

Juicy hemorrhoid is the most repugnant phrase of the day.

Feel well.

Alison said...

Diverticulosis is manageable.

And what Mist said.

The CEO said...

Not everyone can be a gastrointerologist, or whatever they are called. He came up with it. I merely presented it to him.

And now to play with Holmes!

The CEO said...

Wicked, what you said. I'm home.

Olives, back home with the little one as I type. She needs me.

Mist, I'm not a writer, but you knew that.

Ali, I'm working on being good. Honest. Hug Allan for me.

WanderingGirl said...

Agreed on Mist's statement. That is fantastically gross.

My Gram has diverticulosis and has found it most helpful to avoid nuts and seeds. Since she's not a squirrel, this is doable. Good luck with yours!

REALLY glad you're home with Holmes and Judy!

Good news! Shall we start running? Nothing like the thrill of the chase.
